Bio: Hello - this blog is currently acting as my website while I work and paint from my Wakefield studio on Westgate. I don't update as often as I wish (or planned to), but hopefully it will give viewers an idea of what my work is about. At its core, its observational, with a study of quite formal elements of painting - composition, tone, pattern, etc. The goals for my paintings are what I consider realistic - wanting to create desirable works that work as both a reflection of the world around, and also as a 'painting', a hand made work of art AND craft that deals with the physical qualities of paint and its application. There are others art forms, such as comedy, film and music, that I would find to harder to live without, but this is what I do and I love spending days in the studio - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Its unstable, frustrating, occasionally unreliable, and I couldn't imagine doing anything else. Most of my work is delivered straight to various galleries around the country, although I can often be found figuring out a private commission. If you have any enquiries, please phone me on 07781127920 or email prstonearts@yahoo.com Thank you - hope you enjoy the work.

  2. Hi Paul. I’ve joined at college again as they have a new tutor. She seems to know what she’s doing, lesson plans and ILPs but Jo is coming back after half term so we’ll see. What are you doing?

  3. Paul I saw one of your pictures at the great north show a while back. We have a new blue kitchen and are looking for a pair of colourful still life pictures of fruit/veg. Might you have anything for sale?
